Annual Sale

We had a fantastic Annual Sale in June selling 70 bulls headlined by sons of Turihaua Hulk, Turihaua Torpedo, Turihaua Dynamite, Turihaua Bingo and Riverland J Capital for a sale average of $10,792.

Lot 2 Turihaua Easterly S272 was sold to Tangihau Angus for $72,000, which equalled the stud’s best ever high price recorded last year.

“It was a really nice bull, with a bit of an X factor,” was how auctioneer Neville Clark described him. “He’s a bit out of the box, something a bit different to what we’ve seen from Turihaua, and that’s what people went for.”

The bull was a standout right from when he was a calf and he has shown all the attributes that our stud is looking for and we’re really excited that he’s staying local, at Tangihau.

It was also great to see that the commercial guys could get a quality bull for $5000 to $12,000, that will benefit their operations without having to spend too much.
